Although the Southern Charm cast member had "never even made pudding," his first attempt at the dessert was a success.

For Austen Kroll's Friendsgiving on the September 1 episode of Southern Charm, Taylor Ann Green offered to bring a broccoli-rice casserole, a green bean casserole, and banana pudding. While Taylor spent that day making both of the savory dishes, she put Shep Rose in charge of the dessert, "the easiest recipe."

Shep, however, wasn't quite convinced he could make the dish. "I have no idea what I'm doing. I've never even made pudding," he said in an interview. "I can barely boil water."

As Shep had questions, Taylor encouraged him to "follow the recipe and look up 'Not Yo' Mama's Banana Pudding.'" Of course, we did just that. According to, the recipe calls for "bananas, french vanilla instant pudding, sweetened condensed milk, whipped cream, cream cheese, and cookies." 

Ultimately, Shep successfully made the dish. When it was finished, Taylor declared, "I'm proud of you."

There was a bit of drama at the Friendsgiving dinner, but Shep's dessert was still top of mind for many people in the group. "Let's go get banana pudding," Leva Bonaparte said following a tense moment. "Banana pudding makes everybody better."
